  1. Honestly, any Z370 MB will do a good job. What is your budget and preferred features?
  2. Get the board with most power phases.
  3. A motherboard with decent overclocking features (diagnosis etc). 3 SATA should be fine. Otherwise, a decent mid price motherboard that can do the job and handles overclocking well would do the trick for me. Thanks!
  4. Asus Hero X
  5. Don't you think that is a little expensive? Any other options?

    GIGABYTE Z370 AORUS Ultra Gaming (Intel LGA1151/ Z370/ ATX/ 2xM.2/ Front USB 3.1/ RGB Fusion/ Fan Stop / SLI / Motherboard) i think this is the best choice if you want a good motherboard with style :D

    Asrock z370 Taichi/Asus Strix z370-e/Asrock Extreme4/Asrock fatality K6. These are some mobo's I would recommend
  9. I just built with an Asus TUF Z370 pro gaming yesterday and it seems pretty solid for ~$150. BUT I haven’t fiddled with overclocking yet since its base turbo of 4.3 is already way over what my most demanding game, BF1, requires (tops out at 80% utilization on busiest core).
